NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Danny Ferguson discusses the recent insertion of Ken Griffey Jr. into the Mariners Hall of Fame. When it comes to the Mariners including Griffey, there really is nothing to debate. Junior was the heart and soul of the Mariners, and all of Major League Baseball, for many years. The other names in the HOF incluce: Alvin Davis, Dave Niehaus, Jay Buhner, Edgar Martinez, Randy Johnson and Dan Wilson.
NWSB insider Danny Ferguson tells us If the Mariners ever need to dip into the PAST to grab an all-star team, he would choose these 5 guys. Randy Johnson, Ken Griffey Jr., Edgar Martinez, Alvin Davis, and Jay Buhner. He wishes some of them were still a part of the team, in their prime – ready to play. So to do the Seattle Mariners of 2012.
NWSB Managing editor “Q” tells us Randy Johnson and Dan Wilson two legendary Seattle Mariners will be inducted into the Mariners Hall of Fame on July 28 at Safeco Field, before a game against the Kansas City Royals. Randy and Dan will become the fifth and sixth major leaguers in the Mariners Hall of Fame. Already in are Alvin Davis (inducted in 1997), Dave Niehaus (2000), Jay Buhner (2004) and Edgar Martinez (2007).
